The Palestinians are the victim of Arab aggression towards Israel and Israel’s victories to this aggression. The political-military goal of Arab nations and the Palestinian authority is to wipe Israel off the face of the earth. They do not actually care about the Palestinian people! The political-military goal of Israel is to reclaim all of Jerusalem, not just part of it, as the capital of Israel. They achieved this by winning the wars brought against them, but at the displaced expense of the Palestinian people!
The Palestinian people are truly the victims of hatred towards Jews and Israel’s determination to protect itself from annihilation. The original plan and mandate for this region of the planet was for there to be two nations side-by-side, Israel and Palestine, with Jerusalem an international-governed city. Jerusalem in full may be the capital of Israel now, but peace can only be achieved when the injustice to the Palestinian people has been addressed and they are U.N. recognized as a nation side-by-side with Israel, and this arrangement enforced by the United Nations.
